I am a 16 year old artist who is currently enrolled at the Edison Highschool in NE Minneapolis. I am a gore artist and sepcialize in... well as I put it "guts and stuff". I am heavily influenced by slasher and fantasy horror manga. My biggest inspirations are Shintaro Kago and Masaaki Nakayama both have influenced me to follow the art style that I love so much and have also both kept me up at night afraid of the monsters in my closet. Despite these influences I have never actually had the intention of scaring someone going to an art peice. My art will often mix beauty with the grotesque, I just love this concept so much. It has always fascinated me. It is so pleasing to look at something beautiful. Seeing mutilated faces, guts, and blood is not so pleasing to look at. How will people feel when they see them together?
